On Wednesday 22nd February, Sycamore class went to London for a school trip. We arrived in London at ten thirty, just in time to watch the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace. It was a great spectacle but it was very busy.
Once it had finished, we went straight to the Houses of Parliament, where we split into two groups and had a tour around Parliament. We watched part of a debate in the House of Commons, where they were discussing organ transplants in Northern Ireland. After that, we had a workshop in the Education Centre, where we discussed women’s right to vote.
Our day was not yet over as we headed to Westminster Abbey, where we were free to explore the magnificent church. We saw the Coronation Throne that King Charles III will use in May, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier as well as the grave of Charles Dickens – just to mention a few of the many historically significant things that are there.
By the time we were on the coach it was four thirty and we were all very tired from our very busy but fun trip.
